Rather like a British Jenny Lawson, Moran's self-read hilarity makes her feminism more fun than any ideology has a right to be. - Seana

"Part memoir, part postmodern feminist rant, this award-winning British TV critic and celebrity writer brings her ingeniously funny views to the States. Moran successfully entertains and enlightens her audience with hard-won wisdom and wit."

If I was the Queen of the World, all women in their 20s would be compelled to read this funny, refreshing feminist book. It's even better on audio, read by the author, who has a wonderful English accent and a marvelously expressive voice. This one is not available on CD.

Moran has a great sense of humor and I love her writing, imagery, and use of metaphor. I'm also really glad that I listened to this book, because Moran read it with so much personality and verve that I feel like I know her now; she's like a wacky friend going off on another rant about bras, or plastic surgery, or whatever. Part memoir and part feminist manifesto, I could definitely relate to some topics more than others: I've never been very interested in drugs or partying, and I'm not one to care much about wearing trendy clothes or uncomfortable shoes that cost $200, but I practically shouted out my support when she wrote about sexism, a woman's right to control her own body, and being able to decide for herself whether or not she wants kids.

This is hilarious and fantastic and I could not recommend it more. No matter who you are (yes, even if you are a man), you will find a ton to relate to in this charming memoir-slash-feminist-treatise. Moran manages to take objective looks at both sides of many feminist hot buttons - like porn, fashion being a mother, and not being a mother. Even when you don't agree with her, you will find her reasoned and charming.
